    More and more it is showing that the very design introduces an inherent risk that is counter-intuitively large.

    What leaps into my mind when reading this story is that you MUST pull the trigger before you can field strip a glock. Showing how a 9mm barrel drops into a .40 caliber model, pull the trigger to begin the field strip and shit goes sideways.

    Worse, this is the kind of design issue that even kills cops. Mistakenly rack the slide to eject the chambered round then drop the mag, and when you pull the trigger to release the spring tension you fire the round that loaded before the mag dropped.
